The Water



video
Abby loves the water. You can see her practicing her floating in the tub. She asks to be in the lake every day. Who can blame her with the weather we are having. Yesterday was a record breaking 104 degrees in Tacoma. I was melting. Ugh! We got some relief by going to Nikki & Matt's house with AC. The lake is the other form of relief. We jump in often, and I'm not sure what I'd do without it. Abby is catching on to the concept of swimming quickly. She at first wanted to be where she could stand but would throw herself into the water so everything but her head was covered. She had no interest in floating - kind of freaked her out. However, she transitioned from that quickly and caught onto the idea a couple days ago - with the help of her little floatation device. Yesterday she was kicking and paddling to get where she wanted to go, as seen on the video. Her smile while she's playing in the water lights up my life. I'm glad she loves it so. She has no precaution around the water, which makes me a bit nervous but also makes me not put my guard down.

I love the video...she's doing great! I was surprised she didn't seem to be upset when her head went under. Good for her.
